This procedure is used to increase the breast’s volume and firmness, reshaping it to improve body symmetry and overall attractiveness.
During the surgery silicon implants are placed beneath the breast muscle (only in certain cases they are placed over the muscle) using incisions around the nipple or in the breast crease, which make the scars less noticeable.
The procedure does not alter the mammary glands, so it does not interfere with breastfeeding.
In this procedure the doctor removes excess skin and breast tissue, reshaping it and giving it a more adequate size for the patient’s body structure. This alleviates the common problems associated with big breasts (back and neck pain, arm numbness, excessive humidity under the breast, shoulder marks from bra straps, among others).
Surgery can be performed with two different techniques: vertical incision or inverted T, depending on the size of the breast and the amount of tissue that needs to be removed.
Pregnancy, nursing and substantial weight loss may cause breasts to sag and lose their natural firmness, becoming flaccid and unattractive. The mastopexy supports and lifts them up, returning them their firmness and juvenile appearance.
This can be achieved with mammary tissue only, or in certain cases a breast implant is used to improve texture and get longer lasting results.
